Is it normal that my right testicle is half the size of my left in width?

Is it normal that my right testicle is half the size of my left in width?

May be normal: Your notes indicate that you have already been evaluated by a urologist, so I would defer to his opinion. Sometimes there may have been damage to one testicle (the smaller one) or there may be a water collection (hydrocele) or hernia around the larger testicle. Sometimes people are just asymmetric for no particular reason. Read more

What is the normal testicle size of a adult in CM? Husbands left testicle length 2.99 width 1.7 depth. 1.9 right length 3.4 width 1.9 depth 1.9.

Some variability: Average/normal testicular size for alduts is about 2 inches in length & about 0.9 - 1.2 inches in width and breadth. 2.99" & 3.4", assuming your husband's testicular measurements are in inches would be very large, or small if measurements in centimeters. Should consult a urologist if testes enlarged after puberty, in case he has a testicular malignancy. Benign enlargement? Due to hydrocele fluid. Read more

Hi. My testicle got small. Why? An how to make them big again an its that possible to reagain there size? Help me by suggesting what to do with this?

Here are some...: How have you perceived the testicles got smaller? How long has it been? Generally speaking, physical growth stops naturally after marching into adulthood, which for men is around 18. However, it is still advisable to see urologist who can verify & counsel you for what your testes are in adequate size. Meanwhile, for one at 21, it is advisable to practice testicular self-examination. Read more

My 14 mnths old son has an undescent testicle. His dr said that it did not grow and the size is 3 times smaller than the other one. What should we do?

My 14 mnths old son has an undescent testicle. His dr said that it did not grow and the size is 3 times smaller than the other one. What should we do?

Difficult issue: In the US the kid would usually be seen by a specialist in child urology. Additional testing would be done to confirm the physical findings. Then the options would be explained. My expectation would be surgery to bring down the testis or remove it if it were found to be abnormal. Read more

Testicle volume measured in MM (on results)by scan gives a volume of left side 7mls and right mls. Is this normal size for an adult. What normal size?

Testicle volume measured in MM (on results)by scan gives a volume of left side 7mls and right mls. Is this normal size for an adult. What normal size?

Testicular volume is: The measured length x width x thickness in mms of the testicle or its comparison with a standard model of the testicle. It varies primarily by age and the way it's measured. If the information you provided is accurate, it is NOT normal for a 34 y/o male. The lower limit of "normal" is 20ml, the average 30ml & the upper limit is 40ml. The man in question needs to speak with his doctor. Read more

Here are some...: If this is the first time of attention to left "testis", go to be evaluated with good Hx, physical exam, and possible ultrasound (rarely needed) so to define the possible reasons such as large varicocele, unnoticed undescended testis, post-surgery - hernia repair, etc. To get the related things done correctly can be done by following instructions in http://formefirst.

I'm male 17 why has 1 of my testicle grown pea sized?

Here are some. ..: Either age of 17 or 47, a pea-sized testicle could result from congenital (related with undescended testicle with orchiopexy), post-mumps orchitis since childhood, inadvertent severing testicular artery during inguinal hernia repair or varicocele correction, etc. So, a detailed Hx may help track down the cause for severely shrunk testis.

I'm male 17 why has one of my testicle grown pea sized?

Testicular atrophy: May have had testis torsion before birth or in infancy if always very small. Could be result of later torsion if testes used to be same size. U would have had an episode of severe testicular pain & swelling which lasted for a few days & resulted in demise of your testicle. Should see a urologist if this was the case because other testis may be at risk & require simple procedure to secure Read more

What size is an average testicle and how do you calculate the volume.

What size is an average testicle and how do you calculate the volume.

Will vary.: Population based studies have found adult 95% of testes to be 4 to 8cm in length & 18 to 25ml in volume. Two ways to assess volume are commonly used. One is scrotal ultrasound (us) where measurements are taken and volume calculated. Another is an orchidometer, which estimates testis volume. If you have any noticeable change in testicular size, texture, or symmetry, get evaluated without delay. Read more

Testicle was swollen when woke up it is its normal size now it was firm

This: This is likely a hydrocele, which is a sac of fluid around the testicle that may communicate with the abdominal cavity and fill up with fluid from the abdominal cavity from time to time. However, it is more common for these to enlarge over the course of the day while you are up and about, and then get smaller as you lie recumbent overnight, than the situation you are describing. You should go to your doctor or make an appointment with an urologist to be evalauated. Read more

I found a 2 milimeter sized bump on my right testicle and don't know what it is, help?

I found a 2 milimeter sized bump on my right testicle and don't know what it is, help?

Likely benign: Could be a scrotal "pearl" from a calcified appendix testis, or a tiny cyst. Probably best to see urologist for reassurance & certainly if it gets any larger & there is any question of a testis tumor. All testis tumors have to start out being very small. Diagnosis easy to confirm by ultrasound. Good luck. Read more
